Health Care Startup PicnicHealth Raises $25M for its Patient Health Record Management Service
| < 1 minute read
PicnicHealth, the startup that’s looking to give patients a way to manage their care in one place and pharmaceutical companies access to patient records for real-world data, has just raised $25 million in financing to grow its business.
Founded in 2016 by a former international development worker and Crohn’s Disease patient, Noga Leviner, PicnicHealth’s initial pitch was around giving patients the ability to manage and coordinate their own care. It’s something that Leviner, a person with a chronic condition, knows can be complicated.
The service is free for patients who are involved in clinical studies, and anyone who isn’t participating in the study pays a fee for the records management service, according to Leviner. To date, PicnicHealth has raised nearly $40 million from investors, including YCombinator, Amplify Partners and Felicis Ventures, with participation from notable investors in a seed round that included Social+Captial, Great Oaks, Slow Ventures, YC partner Paul Buchheit, and many others.
